Princess Diana and Meghan Markle are SIMILAR in more ways than you think

Princess Diana and Meghan Markle are “two peas in a pod” and share striking similarities, according to a royal biographer ahead of the US actress and Prince Harry’s wedding.

Andrew Morton, the author of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, said Meghan will “pick up the baton dropped by Diana” adding that it “strikes him” how identical they both truly are.

Coincidentally, Meghan will marry Prince Harry at 36, the same age the late Princess Diana died, says the author.

Mr Morton said both Harry’s late mother and his future wife have a love for helping people in need, adding they share a “desire to give back and make a difference”.

However, he noted that there were particular differences in their demeanour, with Princess Diana much more “shy” and reserved compared to Meghan.

A well-known royal biographer, Mr Morton also wrote the highly raved 1997 Princess Diana biography, Diana: Her True Story

He told Tatler: “What unites both of them is the desire in wanting to give back and make a difference.

“By the time they got into their 30s, Meghan and Diana were independent humanitarians with a vision.

“And also it strikes me that Diana died at 36 and Meghan’s coming into the family at 36.

“There’s a sense that Meghan is picking up the baton dropped by Diana.”

Meghan’s age will prepare her for the challenges of the royal life when she marries Prince Harry on 19 May at St George’s Chapel, according to royal commentator Richard Kay.

He said: “Over the years, others have married into the royal family – think of Diana Spencer, Sarah Ferguson – and they couldn’t cope with it.

“They found the expectation too high, too hard.

“Meghan is that much older, much more confident and more experienced and I think that gives her a very good chance of making a good shot at this.”
